Duty done, now for a few diversions from politics

We both had our wet weather gear on to walk to the polling station, which is, luckily, not too far from home.

My vote was the first time I placed a cross on the voting paper using my left hand. Haven’t yet got sufficient gripping strength in my right hand. Am capable of one fingered typing, so am back to writing here – intermittently though.

This is the first election in which I’ve not delivered election leaflets. We received an election leaflet from the Green Party, Conservatives, Labour, UKIP, and FIVE leaflets from the Liberal Democrats.

Following this post will be some items offering a diversion from politics. I know I’ll not be able to resist staying up until very, very late to watch the results, the following diversionary posts will keep my mind of the subject, at leat for a short while.

Decisions, decisions

With one vote only for the European Elections in 2019. Oh, what do?

Do I spoil my ballot paper with a rude comment, fall for the blandishments of The Brexit Party, or not put a cross anywhere?

I did decide to vote, and essentially I voted for the excellent Daniel Hannan. I do hope he gets in, though that’s not certain in these uncertain times.

Conservatives JUST hang on to control of Surrey Heath Borough Council

The election results is not are now fully declared yet by the Borough Council. Though by my count the Conservatives have won 18 of the 35 seats on the council, and have therefore retained control of the council. My goodness that’s a close run thing.

Surrey Heath Borough Council elections results continue to amaze

At current count, looking at the Council’s election results website the Conservatives have lost 15 seats, from Frimley Green, Heatherside, Mytchett and Deepcut, Bagshot, Windlesham and Chobham, and Lightwater. All previously solid Conservative wards. Only Valerie White, Paul Deach, and Rebecca Jennings Evans are returned for the Conservatives.

Some serious appraisal needed of the reasons for the failures. Too soon for me to give my views
